I place all my trust and confidence in the Lord and I put no confidence in the flesh – I declare myself to be dependent upon God. I know that I cannot save myself, nor set myself free by my own efforts and resources. I know that apart from Christ I can do nothing. I know that all temptation is an attempt to get me to live my life independently from God, but God has provided a way of escape.
I consciously and deliberately choose to submit to God and resist the devil by denying myself, picking up my cross daily and following Jesus. I know that my soul was not designed by God to function as master. I know that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and insubordination is an iniquity and idolatry.
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”(Proverbs 23:7)

Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit (Matthew 7:17). Continue reading →

(Matthew 10:22) And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.Continue reading →
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof”(Proverbs 18:21)
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Our words have power! There is absolutely no doubt about that! God spoke you, me, and this world into existence. He tells us in His Word that we have the power to speak life or death, blessing or cursing into our lives, that of our children, those around us, and into our circumstances. God gave us a choice between life and death, blessings and curses, and in His Wisdom, He tells us to choose life that we and our descendants may live. Glory to God! Continue reading →
